Integrated Early Childhood
Supporting the next generation.
Members provide resources and support based on the special needs of the children and staff in the Thompson R2-J School District Integrated Early Childhood Program (Head Start, Colorado Preschool and Special Education).
The committee meets year long to fulfill the individual needs of the teachers and programs. The main focus is to provide educational “extras” for at-risk children, including kits of school supplies for home use, hand-made dress up costumes, felt story boards, puppets and more.
The committee hosts a book fair fundraiser to purchase books for early childhood at Thompson schools and spring pre-K literacy fair, and they collect book donations at Philo's annual Christmas party.
